So this is probably going to be the last week of constant Death and Return of Superman coverage here at the Fortress.  It’s been a wild ride and I have done pretty much everything I set out to do with not only synching up the content here with what Jeff and I are covering on From Crisis to Crisis and in laying out the history of the storyline as well.  I am sure there are things I missed but hopefully I will uncover those artifacts at some point and post them here.

To close things out I have kind of a hodge podge of stuff to post.  These are bits of business that I have scanned or were sent to me that I were sent to me last minute, couldn’t find a decent place for or I just plain forgot I had.  Today I have an example of the first option as my good friend Shag (he of Firestorm Fan and the Fire and Water Podcast) sent me this a month or so back.  For those of you that don’t know Shag managed a comic shop in the mid-nineties and apparently a local newspaper came to his store when Superman #82 hit the shelves.  Shag saved that article and now I get to post it here.

I would make a joke about the fact that Shag has hair in that picture, but that seems a bit too easy.

This is an interesting article and I like the fact that they interviewed Roger Stern.  It is kind of odd that they credit him as the creator of the Superman: Doomsday action cards but I will chalk that up to the obligatory mistake the writers of this sort of article makes.  Unless he wrote the copy for those cards and the writer thought that meant that Roger created the series.  It was also a surprise to see Books-A-Million mentioned as I thought that was a fairly recent chain but that only proves that if I haven’t seen it before it’s new to me.

Special thanks again to Shag for sending this to me.

Next time: A novel idea.

More to follow…

    Holy crap, Shag with hair!

    And he called himself Shag before the Internet. That’s weird.
